This is an incredibly simple project, I feel a bit weird posting it, but I find it so useful that I wanted to share. It’s definitely one of those “why didn’t I think of this sooner?” type things.
I made a wooden block to hold a magnetic door latch and mounted it under the workbench, below the dog hole. I turned a wooden piece to act as a bench dog. When you combine the two, you have a bench dog that will either sit flush with the workbench top or sit just above the surface when you need to use it as a bench dog.
It’s really hard to show in pictures because the block is below the workbench and the dog is above (of course). If you like, you can see the build video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4-zkWlPVRg
